Real Wedding: Leah and Michael, III
March 5, 2009
North America

Loving today's real wedding, that the fabulous bride, Leah, sent us. Her eye for style is so spot on...a little bit vintage, a little bit totally chic. Plus, she's been sweet enough to share all of the gorgeous details with us!

How great is the photography by the way? LOVE. From Leah...

When I finally got down to the planning, I knew what was most important to me were family and friends. In particular, my grandpa, Frank Bossom, is 92 and our only living grandparent. It meant the world to me that he would see me be married (my gramma, his wife Frances, passed away last year, and I know she was looking down and smiling). As such, we decided to head out to the beautiful Victoria for the big day, where a lifetime full of friends of mine reside, not to mention all of my immediate family.

In realistically assessing our budget, we decided five things were most important to us:

A style that genuinely reflected "us"

a cool cake!

a cool car!

an awesome sit down meal

and a great party with fantastic music that was just plain fun.

And so, almost all of our budget went toward food, and a photographer to capture all the precious moments with friends and family. As such, we decided to choose venues that were just plain beautiful in themselves, that needed very little adornment, and that were close to our hearts. We're all about simple but stylish.

See how it all transpired in just a bit!
